Golden Globe of style, elegance
Though this year’s Golden Globe Awards has come and gone, the memory would linger in the minds of winners, nominees, guests and viewers across the world that watched the live broadcast on TV. Staged at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, United States of America, this year’s award saw different shades of fashion, especially from the ever-fashionable screen divas that strutted the red carpet in gorgeous outfits.
Hosted by the duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who spiced the evening with jokes and commentaries, the 72nd Golden Globes started out pretty much as expected; turn out was impressive, with popular faces in attendance. Right from the star-studded red carpet session to the main hall, it was all glitz and glamour. In fact, for a young fashion designer, watching the show is enough to compile a rich fashion catalogue.
Thought the ladies turned up in stylish outfits that got tongues wagging, it appears this year’s show was all about white and red; both colours dominated the red carpet. Well, naturally, you will always get it right with white when it comes to fashion. On the other hand, red is always a feminine colour; it works really well for the ladies. Notwithstanding, there were some really weird designs as usual.
As for the men, suit is always an escape route when it comes to glamorous events. And at the Golden Globe 2015, most men were suited in different shades and cuts. In all, the guys represented.
In many ways, the show will remembered for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s (presumed) last hosting hurrah, a running gag featuring Margaret Cho as a North Korean representative and a couple of gasp-inducing Bill Cosby jokes.
In a rousing address, Theo Kingma, head of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — the journalists’ organisation that puts on the Globes — called out the need for free speech.
“As international journalists, we understand the freedom of artistic expression. It is not only an integral part of the American fabric but a beacon that is reflected across the globe,” he said.
“Together, we will stand united against anyone that will repress free speech. Anywhere, from North Korea to Paris.”
